“Tis the season” for Christmas/holiday advertisements – everywhere. As far as I’m concerned – WestJet are the masters at Christmas advertising – mainly because it’s great story telling and no ‘big pitch’.
This year’s “WestJet Christmas Miracle: Spirit of Giving” video was released late Sunday, Nov. 30th and at the time of writing this article, it had 788,102 ‘hits’ on YouTube. Although it’s longer than any regular commercial – it’s anything but boring and just ‘makes you feel good all over’.
You can click right here – to see it right now!! (or on the image link below) BUT do come back and check out these other links for some ‘behind the scenes’ goodies about this wonderful ad.
1. WestJet’s blog page has details and a second video that explains the “WHY” behind this year’s story. Some great info about WestJet’s true commitment to ‘giving’ year round! Take a peek!
2. The Globe and Mail did a commentary about the authenticity of this year’s WestJet Christmas video. Very interesting and adds to the previous link’s info.
3. Did you know this is the third ‘Blue Santa’ video from WestJet? I didn’t and in case you haven’t seen the other two or want to enjoy them again – here are the links:
Which of the three videos is your favourite and WHY??? Please share your reactions and comments below. Would you like to see another Blue Santa version for 2015?
